Cross-Country In All Its Forms
Benefits for You
At the heart of the Jura Mountains, Nordic-style skiing allows to you to indulge in all the joys of winter. Whether on your own, as a pair or as part of a larger group, you will definitely find the cross-country skiing style best suited to you: Skating-style or classic-style, at race pace, trekking-style, walking-style or “exploration”…
Calling All Sporty People!
Why not follow in the footsteps of Olympic champions who have found their paradise on Earth in our mountains? It must be a great training ground, given the extent of their success. Follow the route of the legendary Transjurassienne (an annual cross-country ski race held here). Learn Nordic combined, cross-country and ski-jumping, or biathlon. Nothing is more natural than to challenge yourself at the heart of the Jura mountains. And, if need be, there are ski schools here to help you with those first few steps.
In Search of Authenticity
Travel along the Grandes Traversées du Jura he Jura’s long-distance crossing routes), meet the inhabitants of this mountain range and learn about their skills at the many themed museums dotted along this route. Enjoy a gastronomic trip and taste Comté cheese, Morteau sausage and Bugey wines. New discoveries await, just around the corner from your cross-country ski trail.
Enjoy the great outdoors. Take time to admire the Jura landscapes, cross the path of an animal or prick up your ears to hear where it’s gone, revel in the crunch of snow under the skis and enjoy the quiet of a mountain where the presence of Man is both discreet and reassuring. It is worthy of a Jack London novel – a decidedly Northern ambiance awaits you on our trails in the Watch-making country, in Haut Doubs, on the Retord Plateau and in the Haut-Jura.
